August 2, 2014 … grey and damp

Bad weather continues and I didn’t get excited.


On the beach near Burdan’s Gate

Along the Eastern Bays I went looking for something that was worth making a picture of, and didn’t really find it. A patch of sunlight and some more crepuscular rays between Ward Island and the city were about as exciting as it got.


Solitary Man

Coming back towards Eastbourne from Burdan’s Gate, I saw this man walking along the beach. He was kicking occasionally at the sand but provided the classic opportunity for a solitary person on a beach.

Oil tanker

Atlantic Innovator

At York  Bay there was a view towards Petone that included  the Panamanian registered tanker, Atlantic Innovator discharging fuel at Point Howard. Our home is in the mist above and slightly to the right of the vessel. That hose crane is pointing in the right direction.

That’s all I found.


About wysiwygpurple

Retirement suits me well. I spend much of my time out making pictures, or at home organizing and refining my pictures. This blog provides me with a platform from which I can indulge my passion for improving my photography and at the same time analyze my thoughts about what I have seen, where I have been and what is happening in my life. My images set out to be honest, but that does not mean I have not adjusted them. I use software to display what I saw though the viewfinder to best advantage. My preference is for landscape and nature, and is mostly centred around my hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.
